California Will Align Its Mask Guidance with CDC on June 15

The California Department of Public Health will align its mask guidance with the CDC's on June 15, when California aims to fully reopen the economy. This means that fully vaccinated people still need to wear masks indoors in Woodland and Yolo County. The City of Woodland continues to encourage community members to get vaccinated as soon as possible to help us return to normal quickly and safely.

Read on for more information in English and Spanish.

Current CDPH guidance requires that vaccinated individuals wear a mask indoors and when attending crowded outdoor events or other similar settings. In addition, unvaccinated individuals are required to wear a face covering outdoors any time physical distancing cannot be maintained, as well as indoors. There are a few exceptions for those who are vaccinated when visiting indoors with others who are fully vaccinated or low risk individuals. 

People with no or few symptoms of COVID-19 can still spread the disease and the use of face coverings, combined with physical distancing and frequent hand washing, will help reduce the spread of COVID-19. 

Residents are recommended to get vaccinated as soon as possible, especially now that residents 12 and older are eligible in Yolo County. Current data show that the COVID-19 vaccines protect residents from circulating strains, including variants, significantly reducing the chance of getting severely ill or dying from COVID-19. All of the COVID-19 vaccines have been shown to be safe and effective and are free for all residents. The more people who are vaccinated, the harder it is for COVID-19 to spread.

La guía actual de CDPH requiere que los individuos vacunados usen una máscara en interiores y cuando asisten eventos al aire libre con mucha gente y en otros ambientes similares. Adicionalmente, personas no vacunadas son requeridos a usar coberturas faciales en exteriores en cualquier momento que no se puede mantener el distanciamiento físico y también en interiores. Hay unas pocas excepciones para personas que son vacunadas cuando están visitando en interiores con otras personas completamente vacunadas o individuos en bajo riesgo. 

Personas sin síntomas o pocos síntomas de COVID-19 todavía pueden propagar la enfermedad y el uso de coberturas faciales combinado con distanciamiento físico y el frecuente lavado de manos, pueden reducir la propagación de COVID-19. 

Se aconseja que los residentes se vacunen lo más pronto posible, especialmente ahora que los residentes de 12 años o mayor son elegibles en el Condado de Yolo. Datos actuales demuestran que las vacunas de COVID-19 protegen a los residentes de circular a las variantes, considerablemente reduce la probabilidad de desarrollar enfermedad severa o morir de COVID-19. Todas las vacunas para COVID-19 actualmente disponibles han sido demostradas a ser seguras y efectivas, con raras casos de severos efectos secundarios, y son gratuitas para todos los residentes. La mayor la cantidad de personas vacunadas, lo más difícil es para que se propague COVID-19.
